WHOA  
I think, If I figured the SF/F bracket properly, given the votes at closing, boys will be against boys, and girls will be against girls. No, wait, that's not the amazing part.

IT IS COMPLETE PARITY.



Seed - Characters - vote

1. Scully - 1672
2. Dean - 1335 (SO SAD BB CASTIEL DIDN'T MAKE IT)
3. Olivia - 1255
4. Merlin - 1229
5. Aeryn - 1157
6. Eric - 1034
7. Kara - 1011
8. Eleven - 1008
9. Mal - 956
10 Buffy - 898
11. Nathan - 880
12. Annie - 870
13. Chuck - 859
14. Chloe - 840
15. Spock - 632
16. Sam C - 454

So, in a NCAA-type single-elimination round of 16, the seedings work as follows:

(top of the bracket)
1 v 16 -- Scully vs Sam
8 v 9 -- Eleven v Mal R

5 v 12 -- Aeryn v Annie
4 v 13 -- Merlin v Chuck

(bottom of the bracket- winner of the top plays the winner of the bottom)
6 v 11 -- Eric v Nathan
3 v 14 -- Olivia v Chloe

7 v 10 -- Kara v Buffy
2 v 15 -- Dean v Spock

Just think, if Eleven had pulled off FOUR MORE VOTES to overtake Kara this would've been screwed. But right now, barring any adjustments for voting fuckery, it is PERFECTLY BALANCED at all matches and within the bracket itself.




Damn, it's kind of beautiful how symmetrical that worked out.

(and relevant only to me -- Sam ended tied with Bill, at least. WHAT? It's the little things!)

Kara v Buffy
Ffffffffff, this is gonna be painful. :(

Why can't we keep them both?!

At least past the first round! That's insane!

Insane and heartbreaking :(

I'm more verklempt over Scully and Sam, since I've been more into both fandoms, but yeah. Apparently easy choices are not allowed this year.

Painful indeed! Having that choice the first round is just wrong.

I hope you're right about how it will play out, though some of the female choices will be tough for me :(

If you're not making tough choices it's not FMM. :)

Scully and Sam is SO SAD. But kind of ironic that it's two chars who both lasted TEN YEARS.

Too bad Spock isn't facing the Doctor for the Ancient Franchise Fight to the Death.

Yeah, I know :(

Though I do love both characters, I've only been active in one of those fandoms so it's an easier choice for me.

lol. That would've been perfect!

Ugh. The only one of those that's easy is Merlin v Chuck. Other than that, pure evil. *sobs*
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 4th, 2011 03:01 am (UTC)
IT IS PURE EVIL.

Except for the ones with the shows I don't watch. Those seem very reasonable. :)
mrsdrjackson: Do what now? - ATHFmrsdrjackson on March 3rd, 2011 08:28 pm (UTC)
Annie is so screwed, Being Human just doesn't have the obsessive following of Farscape.

Kara vs Buffy? KARA VS BUFFY? O_O *headdesk* That is a painful choice.
lizardbeth: Kara - frowny facelizardbeth_j on March 4th, 2011 03:21 am (UTC)
Kara v Buffy is kind of mindboggling.

I'm glad I haven't seen BH UK, so I can vote that one easily. ;)

Thanks for er, actually explaining the seeding. *clueless*

Funnily enough this actually makes it easier for me on the actual voting bit, just not one the ones I hoped would stay longer. :D? D:?

apparently those years of filling out a bracket for my husband's NCAA office pool are useful for something!

Some of those are going to be hard (but how glorious will it be to watch Eleven take out Mal?)---and Chloe's going to cream Olivia, sadly.
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on March 4th, 2011 03:26 am (UTC)
I don't know about that second one -- Olivia got a lot of votes and Smallville's always been small. But there's nostalgia factor for Chloe so, hum, I dunno. I generally suck at guessing though.
